Irregular Beats of the Heart

In D.C. Bloom on April 7, 2014 at 4:48 pm

“I know you still have a heart in there,” she coldheartedly observed.
A heart?
A heart?
Wow.
Where do I start?
Yes, I have a heart.
It’s there. But …
It’s turned to stone.
It’s petrified.
Its beats are irregular
Irregular
Wait for it … Irregular
Quite often these days.
It lays
It lies
pounding
beating
ever-bleeding
Irregular beats
In drunken waltz time
Time.
Time.
Wait for it … time.
How much more does it have?
How many more irregular beats?
How many more coldhearted observations must it bear? How?
Will?
It go on?
When one so dear, when one so near?
Questions
Questions
… questions
Its very existence?
